Allowing our children to struggle can be one of the hardest things that we will walk through as parents.  Unfortunately, our children will not learn self-control, perseverance, character, and hope if we swoop in and fix their mistakes and bad choices.  This podcast will discuss how we can lovingly allow our children to make mistakes and provide empathy and encouragement when they do.  Also, we focus mainly on how Jesus can use their mistakes to grow a closer relationship with him.  A close relationship with Christ is what our main goal should be for our children.
